PostDoc Position in Exascale Computing, Switzerland

 

PostDoc Position in Exascale Computing, Switzerland

A PostDoc position is available in the group "Advanced Computing Laboratory" at the Institute of Computational Science (ICS) in Lugano, Switzerland. The position is part of the project "EXA2CT— EXascale Algorithms and Advanced Computational Techniques" funded under the EU FP7-ICT programme. The successful applicant will work on the development of a code generation and autotuning framework for parallel stencil computations on modern microarchitectures. The project is conducted together with academic and industrial project partners from Europe.

The Workplace
ICS at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) in Lugano provides a unique research environment in the fields of mathematical modeling, high-performance computing and numerical simulation. Strong competences in modeling, mathematics, simulation and information science come together in an open and application oriented atmosphere. In addition to the opportunities at USI and ICS, the Swiss-wide FoMICS graduate school and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Lugano both offer excellent educational possibilities. For further information about ICS, please visit www.ics.inf.usi.ch.

Assignment
The EXA2CT project brings together experts at the cutting edge of the development of solvers, related algorithmic techniques, and HPC software architects for programming models and communication. It will take a revolutionary approach to exascale solvers and programming models, rather than the incremental approach of other projects. We will produce modular open source proto-applications that demonstrate the algorithms and programming techniques developed in the project, to help boot-strap the creation of genuine exascale codes. The goal of the subproject is to increase the arithmetic intensity of iterative stencil-type computations by reusing the data for the computation of subsequent time steps as soon as possible, thus maximizing the amount of reusable data and minimizing noncompulsory data transfers to the core-local memories. The successful candidate will extend the PATUS stencil framework and will collaborate with algorithmic and programming models partners within the EXA2CT project.

Qualifications
The PostDoc is expected to hold a PhD in Computer Science preferably with a specialization towards parallel computing. Documented interest towards task parallel threading models and experience with e.g. Intel MIC is regarded as an advantage. Solid written and spoken English is required to publish results and present them at conferences and in journals.

Employment
This is initially a one-year time-limited position that can be extended up to three years with the inclusion of a maximum of 20% departmental duties, usually teaching. The starting date is open for discussion, though ideally we would like the successful candidate to start as soon as possible.

Application
Your application should contain a motivational letter (2 pages maximum), a CV, copies of relevant degrees and two contacts for references. Please submit applications electronically in PDF format to olaf.schenk@usi.ch

Postdoc Position, Mesoscale Neuron Synthesis, EPFL

The Blue Brain Project (BBP), led by Prof. Henry Markram, is looking
for a Post-Doctoral Fellow to extend the synthesis of in silico
cortical tissue from the microscale to the macroscale.

BBP has modeling infrastructure for constructing neocortical columns
containing about 30,000 morphologically-detailed neurons. Several such
columns have already been assembled into a planar hexagonal mosaic
containing up to 1,000,000 neurons. The next stage of development is
to populate three-dimensional mesh models of brain regions from
existing atlases with appropriately-shaped mesocircuits, adjusting
their dimensions and shape to match rodent brain anatomy, and
connecting the circuits via axonal tracts according to known
large-scale connectomics data, yielding a complete rat brain model
containing on the order of tens of millions of neurons.
